Symphonic Sunday

There's just something about a lazy Sunday morning drinking coffee. This morning I decided to also make some brownies to go with my coffee-Symphony Brownies.

I'd seen the recipe on an episode of Paula Dean's cooking show a few months ago and put it on my mental list of something to make someday. Although I didn't have the candy bars on hand, it wasn't a big deal to hop in the car and pick them up at the neighborhood drugstore.

Symphony Bars
  • These are a-m-a-z-i-n-g!!!
  • I followed the advice in the reviews and used 1 brownie mix for an 8 X 8 pan.
  • I also decided to try 2 kinds of bars. Half the pan had the Choc./Almond/Toffee Symphony bars and the other half had dark chocolate caramel Ghirardelli bars.
  • Seriously..these are good...REALLY good!

I have also been knitting. Actually I've been pretty monogamous with my knitting. I've devoted the majority of my recent knitting time to my scroll scarf. It doesn't seem to want to ever end though. I have been using my desk as a reference point (nearly 5 feet long) have just kept knitting and knitting and knitting til it reached the end. I'm nearly there but have plenty of yarn to go further.

I love this pattern..but am starting to get tired of it and the ball doesn't seem to be getting smaller...sigh..I'm at the point in a project where it seems like you knit and knit and knit and it doesn't seem to be getting longer and the ball stays the same size.

I am motivated to stay disciplined and finish the scarf since it's one that requires a quiet environment (I have not had good success in bringing it to SnBs). I know once school starts I won't have as much down time to devote to it. Hopefully my next post will show a completed scarf!!

Holy schnitzels...that's a LOT of Symphony bars in one thing of brownies! I might have to try that. I love Paula Deen, everything of hers is so fattening and I love that she uses a hand mixer and not a stand mixer.

I actually only used 1 symphony bar and 6 of the ghiradelli chocolate squares. Just enough to cover the 8 X 8 pan.
